Hey, happy spring!! It feels so good to say that! Winter is hopefully almost gone and spring is in the air. Well this month’s Glowing Beet’s box gave me a little taste of spring with a lipstick from FitGlow Beauty that’s a mauve pink the perfect transition from winter to spring. Plus, it’s exclusively made just for Glowing Beets-how cool! Then I got some skincare goodies from Gaffer & Child- a facial serum that smells like lemony goodness, and a facial cleanser that’s minty fresh. Plus, some pins to serve as a reminder to not only love yourself but love more in general. If you haven’t heard of Glowing Beet’s then read below on how this subscription box works. If you have, skip to the full review of the March box!
Why Glowing Beets? Well, for starters they include high quality indie brands and they make it so simple. Their website alone is so easy to navigate and browse. They have one box, it’s $29.95-a steal for high end green beauty products. The boxes are all the same, but may vary slightly. For ex. some boxes may get a different lipstick color, but they’re all from the same brand. All boxes are shipped at the end of the month once you’re a subscriber, and if you order during the month it will be shipped out within a few days, up until the 15th of the month. You can sign up for one box, otherwise you will be billed monthly.
I love the concept of Glowing Beets for those who are new to the green beauty scene. They give you a good selection of products, so you’re able to test them out without making a big commitment at first. They also offer special discounts to those brands if you do like them-how cool is that?! Glowing Beets does the research for the best products so you don’t have too. They include a card in each box that lists what the products are.
On to the review!
FitGlow Lipstick in Beet-
I love the name of this lipstick! Obviously perfect for Glowing Beets but also so true to the color. The lip color reminds me so much of a beet. It’s mauve, with some pinkish and berry notes mixed in. A great color for everyday wear but also for kicking it up a notch at night if you keep your lips pretty minimal during the day. The lipstick itself is super hydrating and goes on so smooth. I’m not new to FitGlow Lipsticks. I actually found my perfect red lipstick in a Glowing Beet’s box last year in the color Love. I’m pretty sure this newest find is going to become a fave for spring!
Gaffer & Child Face Cleanser-
So you guys know I love anything with mint in it-and that goes for food too! Haha, love the smell, love the taste. So when I saw peppermint essential oil in this face cleanser I was all in. This cleanser does offer a light foam, even though it’s oil based. It suds up and gives an overall clean feeling to the skin. It says to avoid the eye area, so I did, but it removed all my facial makeup. Their ingredients are mostly organic, minus the green tea extract and willow bark extract. I really dig the glass pump bottle, not only for the environment but also for product preservation.
Gaffer & Child Hydrating Serum-
Next up is their Hydrating Serum. This serum as I mentioned earlier smells like lemons- a very pleasant scent. The oil itself is lighter than a lot of oils I’ve tried and goes on smooth. My skin felt hydrated and moisturized in the morning. Also, a great serum for in the morning before applying your makeup, as it’s not a heavy serum. A little goes a long way with the product. I love that the first ingredient is argan oil-one of my favorite oils. It’s 100% raw, vegan, organic and non-gmo. With only 8 ingredients this oil packs a punch. A light refreshing oil perfect for spring!
Fred and Far Pins-
This month we got some cute pins in our box too! These pins are special reminders to choose love first and foremost. One of the pins says Me-a gentle reminder about self love. Remembering you can’t love other people, unless you truly love yourself. Also, the More Love Pin is a sweet greeting card to celebrate love. These are encouraging messages we all need to hear!
